K02: Interaction Between EMF and Biosystems

Monday, August 18  09:40-10:20,  Room #10

Session Chairs: Guglielmo Dinzeo, Lluis Mir

In view of never-ending controversy about the possible effects of weak electromagnetic fields it is warranted to take mechanistic approaches in addition to experimental and epidemiological approaches. This session will focus on the considerations about mechanism of interaction between electromagnetic fields and biological systems to explore the feasibility of health consequence of weak EMFs.
